CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

It was a dramatic scene at the Nueces County Courthouse on Friday, as a teen was arrested for assaulting his mother following a court proceeding.

"The officer witnessed the 17-year old pushing the mother, and that's when he started to initiate the arrest," Nueces County Constable Eli Tamez said.

Gabriel Trevino, 17, was in court for a school-related matter. When his hearing ended, he and his mother began arguing as they left the courtroom. That's when witnesses say Trevino shoved his mother.

A County Constable Deputy arrested Trevino on the spot, on charges of committing family violence and resisting arrest.
